His biography of Flaubert is small beer compared with Steegmuller, Starkie, and etc. Ditto his Turgenev is inferior to Shapiro and Magarshack.
However, this bio of Tolstoy, though it's been called "fiction" in part, reads well, covers the ground, and runs a shadowy third to Maude and A.N. Wilson. So if you want to read all that's available and worth reading on Tolstoy, you can safely buy this book.
Comprehensive without seeming cluttered with uninteresting facts. Great criticism of Tolstoy's work, but it doesn't take over and turn this into literary criticism.
Overall a wonderful biography.
Book is in very good shape. I wouldn't consider it perfect, but copies of original first edition seem hard to get in any condition. Sevice was quick enough, but box it came in should be a lot sturdier. Book jacket had slight tear and pages a little rough around the edges. As I said box it came in was terrible, I was lucky the book itself didn't sustain damage. I was very happy to get it, and the price was fair. Would buy from them again, after making sure they wrap it better.
